Aside from all the usual sushi and sashimi, the skilled Asian chef makes new-style warm crispy sushi and puts his own original spin on dragon rolls, dynamite rolls and tiger rolls. Using the freshest ingredients, this free-style sushi artist creates fare worthy of Picasso on a plate – vibrant splashes of colour, taste and texture. Watch him at work in the small, open kitchen.
The crab, prawn and seared tuna salads go beyond the usual offerings – as do the tempura prawn rolls, rock ‘n rolls and teriyaki sandwiches. Those with a spicy palate should try the hot, hot box of wasabi parcels. Mix ‘n match your own or go for one of the lunch boxes or platters at this landmark sushi bar in the southern suburbs.
There are good alternative choices for vegetarians, from avo maki and bean curd nigiri to veg hand rolls and fashion sandwiches, with all the usual trimmings.
